Hardtop re-spray South Manchester

This is the section to see what is hidding behind those panels, and how to get rid of the tin worm, cutting out and welding in fresh metal, protection and paint.

Hardtop re-spray South Manchester

Postby Leafo » Wed Feb 26, 2014 2:24 pm

Hi there

I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a sound and reliable body shop in South Manchester that can do a respray on my hardtop. I know autoline and mx5city offer these services and they come highly recommended but I just wondered if anyone could recommend a garage a bit closer to home... Chorlton.

Any advice much appreciated

:idea: :confusion-confused:

Might be worth considering given the cost of a few cans..... if it doesn't work out it can go to a paint shop! Maybe in the summer when it is off the car. In the meantime its MOT time tomorrow.... fingers crossed...
